Observers say the bird is possibly a Great Frigatebird, which was blown by the strong winds from the Pacific Ocean to the Philippines due to the inclement weather condition.

The bird, according to netizen Rocel Tin Romero, spans around 2 meters, and is not frequently spotted in the area.

Records show that there was one similar bird that was sighted in Quezon City many years back.

“Kawawa nmn ung bird dapat magamot agad sya kac parang nanghihina na sya,” Romero posted.

Romero has already called the attention of Albay Gov. Al Francis C. Bichara and Cong. Joey Salceda for assistance.
